Featured in the Huffington Post’s celebration of British #MeToo Activists on International Women’s Day, Nina Millns’ first full-length play Delete was longlisted for the PapaTango New Writing Prize and is being adapted for radio by Wireless Theatre. It has also been chosen for the RADA Festival and the Actor Awareness Festival.
Delete is a funny, poignant and ultimately shocking play about an unlikely friendship between three women in a world saturated in online abuse, addiction and sexual violence. As Tanya uses online resources to move away from a life of addiction into self-actualisation, her parole officer, Sue, is immersed in the digital dating scene. Patricia is introduced to the World Wide Web late in life through Tanya’s Community Service scheme, and by chance finds herself embroiled in the darker side of the online world through a heart-breaking story about sexual abuse. Her lack of internet etiquette and general street smart sees her plunging deeper into a mess of political cover ups and direct action that culminates in tragedy.
Perfect for the #MeToo era this piece puts women’s voices centre-stage. The diversity of ages, class and ethnic backgrounds ensures a fresh and essential perspective on contemporary life – all done with a healthy dose of humour.
Delete is at RADA Festival, London on 2nd July at 2:00 pm & 4th July at 9:00pm It is also at The Actor Awareness Festival on 26th July at 7:00pm.
